Milestone: Reflector replacement begins! The construction team from Burton Construction (of Spokane) has begun replacing reflectors in Circle of Light by Richard C. “Dick” Elliott. The team is meticulously hand-gluing each new reflector back into place, following the exact original patterns in each panel used by the artist Dick Elliott. The conservation team from Architectural Resources Group (ARG) is monitoring the process and testing how well the new adhesive holds up. So far, so good!
We’re following the restoration of Richard C. “Dick” Elliott’s Circle of Light (1992) in Yakima, which had fallen into disrepair in the decades since its installation.
